For the Garage

Home Building Tip
Most garages can be very tight after parking the car(s). There is little room for bicycles, garden equipment and other outside-type appliances. So consider adding storage units to help resolve the spacing issue.

About Garage Doors

Garage Doors: The Crown Jewel of Curb Appeal

from our project library

All garage doors open and close. Yours should do more than that. In addition to protection and insulation, it should add style and beauty to your home

A garage door provides much more than just function. It is often one of the most prominent street-facing sections of a home, and gives homeowners the change to enhance their curb appeal with a few simple style choices.

Homeowners have a lot more choices these days when it comes to garage doors. They are now automated, designed to industry standards, and come in a range of strength and durability options. The structure of most garage doors is made from steel panels, and their exteriors from polyurethane and wooden finishes.

The Look of Your Home

These exterior finishes are essential to the appearance of your home. Garage doors come in a variety of materials and colors, from country to contemporary, and should blend with a home's overall style. Windows and tiles can add elegance to a garage door, while crossbeams and oak or pine slats can give it a homey, country look. Leaving exterior woods can make a garage door rustic, and choosing classic white with a simple pattern can give a door a minimalist, clean style.

Most garage doors are automated, too, adding convenience to function. Most come with remote controls, too, making driving home a pleasure instead of a hassle.

As you search for the right garage door for your home, remember that style matters, and have fun choosing from the many door designs available today.
